Welcome to Fear The Wall’s weekly recap of each Borussia Dortmund loanee’s performance at their respective clubs. BVB have four players out on loan, whose loans all end on June 30, 2021. They also have the buy-back clause for Alexander Isak. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments.
Leonardo Balerdi (CB)
Olympique Marseille (Ligue 1, Coupe de France)
Olympique Marseille flubbed the chance to grab all three points on Sunday, February 28th, despite having an extra man for 20 minutes. They drew 1-1 to third place Olympique Lyon. Leonardo Balerdi sat on the bench for the entire match.
Marseille then epically dropped the ball on Wednesday, March 3rd, when they lost 2-0 to Lille OSC (who is somehow in first place) with goals coming in the 90’ and 90+2’. However, Balerdi got the start for once and played the full 90! He had a pass completion rate of 70%, but no shots or fouls.
Balerdi has one assist, four yellow cards, and one red card in 10 appearances (nine starts) in Ligue 1.
Sergio Gómez (AM)
SD Huesca (La Liga)
In the basement duel on February 27th, SD Huesca drew 1-1 away to SD Eibar. Sergio Gómez was subbed on in the 87th minute. In such limited minutes, there really is no expectation for him to do anything noteworthy.
Gómez has one assist in 17 La Liga appearances (two starts).
Immanuel Pherai (AM)
PEC Zwolle (Eredivisie)
In a Friday night match-up, PEC Zwolle got back into the W column for the first time in over a month, with a 4-1 win over SC Heerenveen on February 26th. Immanuel Pherai was subbed on after 85 minutes. He had one shot-creating action and committed one foul.
Pherai has one goal, two assists, and one yellow card in 19 Eredivisie appearances (11 starts).
Marius Wolf (RW)
1. FC Köln (Bundesliga)
1. FC Köln continue their slide as they fell to Bayern Munich 5-1 on February 27th. Marius Wolf once again got the full 90. He had one shot on goal.
Wolf has two goals, two assists, and two yellow cards in 20 Bundesliga appearances (19 starts).
Alexander Isak (FW)
Real Sociedad San Sebastian (La Liga)
It’s been a month since we last checked in with Alexander Isak over at Real Sociedad San Sebastian. He has been killing it! Isak started all four La Liga games. In 300 total minutes, he had six goals (two vs FC Cadiz, one vs FC Getafe, three vs Deportivo Alaves, and zero vs Real Madrid), 10 shots, two shot-creating actions, five drawn fouls, and one committed foul.
Isak now has 21 appearances (17 starts), 12 goals, two assists, and three yellow cards in La Liga.
Over in the Europa League, Real Sociedad is unfortunately out after losing 4-0 in the first leg and drawing 0-0 in the second to Manchester United. Isak started both matches, playing 125 minutes in total with two shots, one shot-creating action, one offside, and drawing one foul.
He finishes with eight appearances (seven starts) and zero points in the Europa League. He had 16 shots in the competition, so probably deserved a goal or two.
